The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Crazy-For-Books and is currently being hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Every Friday, a new question is posted for book bloggers to answer in the coming week. The purpose of the hop is connection and community. You can discover new blogs to follow, new books to read, and you may end up with some new followers, as well!
This Week’s Question
Hahahaha, just my whole dang life?
Just kidding! I think the first time I truly hit me that I was what would be considered a bookworm was in fourth grade. My teacher would give me additional books to read after I would finish whatever book we were reading for class. She knew I read fast (at least back then!) and didn’t want me to get bored. Reading was always my favorite thing to do at school and at home, though video games were a close second once we got a Sega Genesis.
I think what really brought it home, though, was that none of my friends liked to read as much as I did. In fact, they would actively try and get out of having to read. They would try and watch movies instead of reading the books or just ask me what happened, lol. It really struck me then that not everyone thought books were as magical as I did. Thankfully, the internet became a Thing and now I can find all the bookish people I could want to meet! I love the online bookish community 💕
As for losing sleep over a novel… there are so many! One I distinctly remember, though, was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It was the last book. People had a field day spoiling others just for fun. So I was determined to read the whole book right after picking it up at a midnight release party.
Maaaan, I was exhausted the next day! Was it a smart idea? No. Would I do it again? Of course! Because that’s just the kind of person I am 😂
What made you realize you were a bookworm? What was the last book you lost sleep over? Let me know in the comments!
And, as always, happy reading!
